ESA probe launch countdown begins…

In just less than a month, ESA will be sending two new probes into orbit.

SMOS will look at water in all its forms and how it changes from one to another. This website also has the countdown until launch.

Proba-2 is the second in a line of technology demonstrations, this time going for miniaturisation. The probe includes Earth and Solar observation instruments.
